direction. rick writes, i agree, a majority of people claim to be religion and don't have that close a relationship with god. and we thank you for sharing. that will do it for me, jamie and kelly from washington. >> this is a fox news alert. growing tensions now in egypt as the country's military is forced to intervene in the mounting political crisis. over president mohammed morsi's power grab. i'm kelly wright. welcome to a brand new hour inside america's news headquarters. >> great to have you here. i'm jamie colby, these are members of the military there, reinforcing a wall outside the presidential palace. just 24 hours after tens of thousands of protesters actually broke through a barricade leading to the building and forced president morsi to press ahead with so-called dialog talks as he tried to keep the country from plunging deeper into turmoil. >> connor powell is following this live from our jerusalem bureau, what's happening over here? >> well, last night the violence continued in cairo, it was relatively peaceful today, but the crisis continues on, and today, the egyptian

in any way is an establishment of religion. there is no officially supported secretary or denomination in the manner, this is not in any way an endorsement of any particular religion or any religious denomination. in short the first amendment as originally written had nothing to do with the city sign. indeed, for the first 175 years of our constitutional history, no one would have read the first amendment in this way. they would have -- any way that would have prevented this seal or sign. mr. speaker, in this very room in which i stand, this very chamber, right over my right-hand shoulder is a sign that says in god we trust. the rotunda in the capitol, a chapel that's been in use since 1955 as a place where members go to pray for divine guidance in debating the issues of the day. a stained glass window there shows president george washington kneeling in prayer and the words of saum 16:1 surround him, preserve me, o god, for in thee i put my trust. and the holy bible rests on that altar. i'll grant you, the first amendment has been badly interpreted by the u.s. supreme court, and the 10

teenagers were brutally massacred after being tortured and raped under the name of islam and religion. to be honest with you, all i'm interested in is just saving one life. if i can save one life, then i can die in peace. now, i know the arguments, huge a lot of them are political, but, again, for me, it is an issue of practicality, and it is an issue of saving lives. >> did you want to jump in? >> just one piece of advice to president obama and the u.s. opposite of my good friend. never, ever show modesty when you negotiate with middle east easteners. they are middle east after all. we know something about negotiation. you go there with modesty, you lose everything. start here, maybe you end here. this is attitude you need to have. [laughter] i wanted to ask a question about the relationship between strategy of economic pressure which the u.s. and the west is pursuing against iran, and human rights. i guess -- i phrase it this way, the u.s. claims, and the p5 claim that the sanctions have, and there's a lot of evidence for it, really, devastated the oil exports of iran and devastated

you bought a product manufactured in egypt. beyond the religion except for the real he can realists, what the poor of egypt want is a job. they want economic improvements and morsi knows he can't deliver on a reasonable time frame so he's ramming through this constitution hell for leather because he can do it now and wouldn't be able to do it later. bill: i was surprised 100,000 people came back into the streets. that's a strong statement against what he is doing. but the implications for that entire region, if egypt continues along this path are enormous. he fled the palace yesterday. that was the word that was used. whether he just went home for the night. but you say an arab culture, that's a big deal. why? >> he's perceived as having fled. demonstrators feel they drove him out an left in a panic. this is a macho surface effects culture. egypt remains the pivotal arab country. so the future of egypt is even more important than syria. so i'm concerned about real violence in the streets. the muslim brotherhood is extremely well organized. and the key question is how will the securi

of the constitution because it included a reference to religion. we saw linus reciting the reason for the season. they had a problem with that and a problem with the fact the performance was going to be in a church building. >> all right. now that is not the only issue. you've been tracking controversy and you told something about the salvation army i was surprised about. >> this is a shocker. the salvation army is under fire and, of all places, the university of cal berkley. the salvation army has kettles and every christmas season they ring bells and people give money to charity. the student government association passed a resolution calling for the university to ban the salvation army from campus during the christmas season pause they say the salvation army is antigay. they want the salvation army off of the campus. and it's interesting because again i cover these in my new book, these kinds of stories and dispatches from america and it's really true those who preach tolerance are in fact the least tolerant of all. this is the same area of the country where folks can run around buck naked in

think the attacks by republicans on the president the personal attacks of -- as religion and where he grew up and his citizenship and birth certificate, all of that, bothered enough people that progressives and african-americans that turnout was up because of that. i think that kind of sleazy politics really backfired on him. maybe there is a lesson there, i hope. >> bill: michael they're still counting ballots like in new jersey and new york because of hurricane sandy, there were some ballots -- paper ballots they couldn't get in. every day the president's margin keeps growing to the point where he's got 51% of the vote now. mitt romney, 47%. 47%. >> i think president obama's the first democrat in -- since roosevelt to break 50 and he's broken it twice, right? >> the first to do it twice. i think johnson did it once. >> of course, johnson did it once. that's right. get somebody in here that knows something. not that you don't. >> hey, thanks a lot! >> not just the politics aspect. >> that's right. of course
